QA with Lara Stolman on AwardWinning Documentary SWIM TEAM

By Colin Hogan, Swimming World College Intern. 

Lara Stolman directs and produces the new documentary “Swim Team” that is making the rounds in film festivals across the country. “Swim Team” follows Kelvin, Robbie and Mike Jr. (or Mikey) of the Jersey Hammerheads, a swim team where every member falls on the autism spectrum. The team is coached by Mike McQuay, or Coach Mike out of Perth Amboy, New Jersey.

It’s a raw portrait of growing up–the boys navigate training, school, their future: seemingly the tribulations of every teenager on a swim team. But for kids with autism who struggle with social skills, many small tasks can loom large. And when it comes to not-so-small task of finding your place in the world, it can take a whole team’s worth of families to help each other through.

Swimming World sat down with Stolman to better understand her journey with the Jersey Hammerheads.  The film can be viewed at several upcoming festivals including at DOC NYC or by requesting to host a screening as a part of Swim Team’s community screening initiative.
